On January 19, 2018 my 16-year-old son was in a car accident he received three fractured vertebrae but is OK. On February 10, 2018 and Georgia State patrol officer that responded to the accident came on my sons job accused him of wine while recording and threatening to take him to the station if he was not truthful about his situation. Supposedly there was a third person in the vehicle the night of the accident. The young lady was supposed to have been home already and chose not to stay at the accident she got a ride to her home. Now that her family has found out that insurance is willing to pay out for this accident they are saying that she was in the accident. Had to Georgia State patrol officer contacted me I would’ve been willing to set up a time for them to speak with my son. Instead they chose to come on his job without me knowing humiliate him in front of his coworkers as well as diners in the McDonald’s he works at.I want to know if there is anything I can do as a parent to have this corrected. Is it legal for law-enforcement to question record and intimidate a 16-year-old child without a parent or guardian or legal attorney present if they do not have permission?
Your son wasn’t under arrest of white they would’ve had to write him his Miranda rights. 16 years old so I’m not sure that there must be a parent
